Lower Rincon Creek Watershed Study

October 01, 1999

Heal the Ocean commissioned the Lower Rincon Beach Watershed Study to put an end to speculation regarding the sources of pollution at Rincon Point, a world-class surf spot. This study, prepared in partnership with the County of Santa Barbara Public Health Department and Project Clean Water, was one of the first in the nation to utilize DNA analysis in the environment to determine sources of fecal contamination (human or animal), and this study ultimately determined that human sources of pollution were contaminating Rincon Creek.
